so cold in Ireland by Crranberies

Here is a story
Of hope and of glory.
Hes eighteen years old
And well I fell in love.
But after that,
Where have you gone, from me?
The one that I loved endlessly.

We used to have a life,
But now its all gone.

Mystify…

Does it have to be so cold in ireland?
Does it have to be so cold in ireland, for me?

Are they ready for me?

Where have you gone, from me?
The one that I loved endlessly.
We were to have a child.
Yesterdays gone.
Well I knew the time would come.
When Id have to leave.
Go on.
Look what theyve done to me.
Theyve taken my hand…
And its killing me.
Killing me, killing me, killing me!

Does it have to be so cold in ireland?
Does it have to be so cold in ireland, for me?
Are they ready for me?

But Im afraid Im returning to ireland.
Im afraid Im returning to ireland.
I see, that there is nothing for me.
There is nothing for me.

So carry your past
in the rooms of your heart
and you’ll never he empty
of love when you part

"Camel : Last Eyes Of Ireland lyrics"

Listen now boys,
my grandmother said –
I’ll tell you a story and
then off to bed.
There once was a time,
we lived off the land.
Harvest would come,
and we all lent a hand
But winds blew our lives,
and scattered our seeds.
Changing the landscape,
from flowers to weeds.
See in the graveyard
the families gone.
The grandest of tombstones
carry them on…
When you sail from the Harbour,
It’s your last eyes of Ireland.
We tended the fire,
and faeries appeased
the flame never died
until we had to leave.
And when we were gone,
the house tumbled down
and covered our footprints,
we’d left on the ground.
When you sail from the Harbour,
It’s your last eyes of Ireland.
My eyes are now tired
and no longer see.
But visions of Ireland
linger in me.
So carry your past
in the rooms of your heart
and you’ll never he empty
of love when you part
When you sail from the Harbour,
It’s your last eyes of Ireland.
